"The amazing thing about typography is that you can go your whole life never thinking about it (or so I’ve heard) yet once you begin to study it, you discover a vein of material so rich enough to mine for a lifetime. Typography is about the way we form language into pictures. It is where the literary and visual arts rub together and make sparks. And those sparks are visible to anyone who wants to see them."
#Catcher in the Rye
Holden Caulfield Folio by Anne Jordan
“This is a series of visual investigations exploring in interoperation of the book The Catcher in the Rye. There are a number of important words in the book that encapsulate overarching themes of the story, such as mummy/memory, catch/meet, and Holden/hold on. I used these words as content to build typography using a range of physical materials and processes to reinforce the concepts attached to the words, creating very specific intersections between the two.”
Poemotion is an interactive book-object. The abstract graphical patterns in this small volume are set in motion as soon as you move the attached special foil across them: moiré effects allow complex forms to develop, set circles in motion and make graphical patterns vibrate. With this book the viewer can discover how, as if by magic, figures and forms are created out of optical overlays, set in motion and then disappear again. In the era of digitalization this book shows that interactivity is also possible in the format of the analogous, bound book.
